day 1988 – lobster fest

our last visit to tnt was only forty eight hours ago, but the flightclub crew is back again for more. we were so set on a post training lobster fest because we really wanted to pick our own fresh seafood and have the cafeteria chef cook it before us. i chose the black bean sauce for my lobster which was pretty yummy. on top of that, i also had some hot cooked food namely broccoli and honey garlic spare ribs. my whole meal came out to twenty five dollars which is a decently priced for a seafood meal

day 1943 – sai kung

last day of my hong kong trip 2018 spent eating on seafood road in sai kung. that’s a wrap for this year’s asia trip. i caught up with a number of old friends, visited a lot of fun places, and ate an abnormal amount of food, but most importantly i saw family. it’s hard saying goodbye, but i must go home to resume my usual lifestyle and work commitments. i’ll admit at times it’s hard to swallow seeing the conditions both my grandmas are in. i really wish i could improve their standard of living, but i feel hopeless and almost heartbroken not having got a clue how. i’ll be back to my stomping ground soon enough

day 1936 – lamma island

meeting up with another long time friend and teammate for a day trip to lamma island. it’s my first time on this island so we decided to do a hike and eat a lot of fresh seafood. it was a hot day so i couldn’t keep my long sleeve on as much as i wanted to protect myself from mosquitoes. after lamma island, we took the ferry back and hit up tsimshatsui. that wasn’t a very wise choice because it’s one of the most crowded places on a weekend evening. i must mention part of the reason is hit up via tokyo for some matcha ice cream

day 1833 – spot prawns

my parent’s week-long tour of greater vancouver continues with steveston fisherman’s wharf. dinner is served with loads of fresh seafood that my parents brought home from steveston market. my family rarely chooses to eat shellfish for health reasons. for some reason my parents planned out today to be a homecooked seafood fest. i couldn’t turn down the fresh sockeye salmon and delicious spot prawns

day 1207 – hotpot for two

it’s that season again when staying indoor is the better choice. bracing ourselves for the cold and wet vancity weather with dual soup base hotpotting in the comfort of our own home. it’s an unconventional variation of candle light dinner. our job was to finish everything on the table, but too much food to be had; devoured a full day worth of food in one sitting

day 1054 – fancy feast

#justimage

a rare fancy occurrence on the island for a belated celebration of our significant day. we chowed down on the many fresh seafood dockside had to offer including squid, halibut, salmon, scallop and mussels. i couldn’t have asked for more than celebrating with great company in a great atmosphere. time really flew us by; we’ve been keeping it steady and strong. three months ago, i couldn’t imagine what i was getting myself into; today, i can’t imagine what it would have been without

day 900 – dineout

one more food post because it’s dineout vancouver in conjunction with a belated  celebration for my dad’s birthday. the kale salad and this seafood linguine was top notch, but the chocolate mousse dessert was disappointing. i normally don’t eat pasta but had to pick it after hearing good things about it. i guess i could break my rules just for dad’s special occasion
